Things are really not going well for comedian Katt Williams. The comic was arrested this weekend after getting into an altercation at a Seattle-area bar, news which we wish we were surprised to hear. We’re starting to get genuinely concerned that you young people wouldn’t remember Williams as anything other than a man who is constantly getting arrested. In addition to acting gigs like My Wife and Kids and Friday After Next, Katt is an insanely talented (NSFW) comedian. When he isn’t fighting in bars, that is.
Now, it doesn’t take a behavioral psychologist to realize that someone who allegedly threatens his fellow patrons with a pool cue and throws a cigarette in a stranger’s eye is going through some sort of crisis. Then we realized: all of Katt’s encounters with the long arm of the law include one or two truly bizarre details. For example, just last week Williams was pursued by police while driving a “three-wheeled motorbike” through Sacramento. A three-wheeled motorbike. Of course, that’s only the tip of the weird, illegal iceberg…
2) Last week (following his low speed chase), Katt slapped a Target employee across the face. It goes without saying that the incident was caught on camera. Weirdest detail: We wish we could say it was the fact that Katt drove away from the incident in his own cart, but it would actually be the “slapping a Target employee” part. What could they even have been talking about?
3) Williams’ bodyguard shot a family’s German Shepard outside a Jack-in-the-Box in Arizona when the dog bit him last July, after which Katt offered the (undoubtedly horrified) family a Mastiff puppy to make it up to them? Weirdest detail: The man just had a Mastiff puppy on hand?
4) Last June Katt was arrested after a landscaper was attacked by three women hurling dirt and rocks at outside the home where Williams was staying. The comic then blocked the man’s escape with his SUV. Weirdest detail: Dirt and rocks?
5) In 2009, Katt was arrested and charged with burglary and criminal trespassing in Newnan, Georgia after he…just broke into a person’s house and stole their stuff. Weirdest detail: Katt Williams is a famous comic who has broken into someone’s home and stolen their stuff.
